Betty Kuenster Daly Rahmel, now a Vermont resident, still communicates with Margaret Mary Parro ’40, who lives in a far northern Chicago suburb. Margaret had been a friend of Betty’s sister, Lois ’40, an artistically talented young woman who, tragically, died in an accident the summer after she graduated from A.O.L. Years later, after Betty had moved to Lake County, she recalls, “A woman came up to me and asked if I were a Kuenster.” The woman, Margaret Parro, had been one of Lois’ best friends at Longwood. Betty and Margaret have remained in touch ever since.
Betty Kuenster Rahmel sent a note last summer letting the Alumnae Office know that she takes old songs and music to the Senior Center in the Vermont town where she lives now. Her two sons also live there, so she is close to family.
